Track Name: Clouds Cried Red
Tonight the clouds cried red
Though they were
Not in the shape of tears
But wilted Sunflowers
Won’t cry anger as the clouds
I remember
My tomorrows can be
Just as the sunflower seeds
Each has a chance
Autumn leaf crossed my path
A Stealthy Brown Cat that
Took my mind with it
A chasing tumbling
Cat that won’t come back
I’ve been traveling on nerves for a while
Need to find some
Time to chill out and relax
To find that nugget of still
But peace it is never there
I looked for it
Out in the countryside
But the grass swayed, the creek ran
And with it my mind
Autumn leaf crossed my path
A Stealthy Brown Cat that
Took my mind with it
A chasing tumbling
Cat that won’t come back
Behind the essential garden
Trudges winter shadow
Spring aches like juice
Recalled on the tongue
Autumn leaf crossed my path
A Stealthy Brown Cat that
Took my mind with it
A chasing tumbling
Cat that won’t come back
On the hardest day of my life
The sun shone
And all of my tears dried on my cheeks
As I faced the wind
I turn my face to the sky,
Open my eyes
And the sun shines straight
into my mind
I just need a breath of time
Autumn leaf crossed my path
A Stealthy Brown Cat that
Took my mind with it
A chasing tumbling
Cat that won’t came back
Autumn leaf crossed my path
A Stealthy Brown Cat that
Took my mind with it
A chasing tumbling
Cat that won’t come back
Track Name: Attitude Decayed
That walk taken together
My thoughts fly above light as feathers
Unsure of the weather in your mind
Turn up my collar in case it’s unkind.
You show the fruit of your love
But spit out only the seed my love
We need to grow something new here love
‘Cos this whatever won’t support our love
My attitude I swear it has decayed some
Getting tired of feeling under fire
Feels a little like a desperate situation
Need your hand to climb out of this mire
Cloudy I hate to think of you that way
But the sun never shines through
Enough to clear the mists from your eyes
My thoughts fly
Man what’s so dangerous and devious
There’s just nothing frightening about us
I feel the sadness of wrong perception
I feel the wonder of a new deception
That walk taken together
My thoughts fly above light as feathers
Unsure of the weather in your mind
Turn up my collar ‘cos I know it’s unkind.
My attitude I swear it has decayed some
Getting tired of feeling under fire
Feels a little like a desperate situation
Need your hand to climb out of this mire
My attitude I swear it has decayed some
Getting tired of feeling under fire
Feels a little like a desperate situation
Need your hand to climb out of this mire
Track Name: I'm Telling You No
I know your minds in a weary and worried state
I know it might be down to being with me today
But if you can hear one word I’m saying to you
I can’t follow you down
Follow you down
Follow you down
Follow you down anyhow
No no no I’m telling you no
I don’t know where you’ve been
You’ve got no reasoning
I’m not gonna drown with you
I’m not gonna go, no
No No No I’m telling you no
Oh you, you go away from me now
You oughta know that I won’t take any blame anyhow
I told you maybe 10 times or more
That I won’t follow you out
Follow you out
Follow you out
Follow you out anymore
No no no I’m telling you no
I don’t know where you’ll go
You’re not my problem no
I’m not gonna drown with you
I’m not gonna go, no
No No No I’m telling you no
No No No I’m telling you no
No No No I’m telling you no
Track Name: Drive Me
Drive me, round the bend
Drive me to a destination
Drive me, round the twist you know
I’m out of my mind letting you
Play me like this
Drive me, away
Drive me, round the twist
Drive me to a realisation
Drive me, to your heart accept
the good, the bad, you know, the sane, the mad
Drive me, to stay
Emulate me, Designate me
Fascinate me, you’re still here
Adulate me, Meditate me
Contemplate me,
Agitate me, Excavate me,
Modulate me you’re still here
Intimate me, hesitate me
Basket case me ... but
Drive me to stay
Drive me to your heart
Drive me up in your estimation
Drive me, to a sense of pride
Come at me with highs and lows,
The realistic afterglows ... but
Drive me that way
Track Name: Inhaling
Not even a part of the world that you’re in
Not even a note in your scale
A chord of intent
and sounds that you meant
Don’t even let me inhale
Inhaling the past and looking to find
The reason you’ve left me so far behind
Inhaling the now to see where you are
and If I can seek you that far
Do Doot Do Do Doot
Sew my heart a harness
Paint the edge so colourful
Cover it with varnish
Make me feel indelible
I fashioned a song out of cloth on my own
Sewn from the threads of my soul
The fabric imbued with a colourful hue
The pattern all broken, not whole
Inhaling the past and looking to find
The reason you’ve left me so far behind
Inhaling the now to see where you are
and If I can seek you that far
Do Doot Do Do Doot
Sew my heart a harness
Paint the edge so colourful
Cover it with varnish
Make me feel indelible
I painted a sound on the edge of my heart
To help me remember my wealth
The colour so bright, psychedelic night light
Willing me to breathe by myself
Inhaling the past and looking to find
The reason you’ve left me so far behind
Inhaling the now to see where you are
and you know I can seek you that far
Do Doot Do Do Doot
Sew my heart a harness
Paint the edge so colourful
Cover it with varnish
Make me feel indelible
Track Name: When We Hang Out
You don’t know me like you think you do
You don’t know me like you think you do
I’ve been thinking about you,
And I’ve known you since I was ‘bout 2
And I know exactly what is in your head
I know that you’ve been missing me,
‘Cos I’ve know you since you were ‘bout 3
And I know you’ve got my number in your head
I’ve been thinking about you,
And I’ve known you since I was ‘bout 2
And I know exactly what is in your head
I know that you’ve been missing me,
‘Cos I’ve know you since you were ‘bout 3
And I know you’ve got my number in your head
When we hang out I am right where I want to be
Close to my best friend of youth, no fuss
When we hang out we can be what we want to be
Our Superhero capes come to good use, no muss
When we hang out we can shelter in the laughter
And the warmth and the closeness of our smiles,
uh huh
When we hang out, we can warm ourselves by
dragon fire,
And swim in the tears of crocodiles, uh huh
When we hang out I can feel in the heart of me
Goodness of a good thing seeping in, good stuff
When we hang out, hey, I always get a sense of me
Moving rightly in this world we’re in, fair ‘nuff
I’ve been thinking about you,
And I’ve known you since I was ‘bout 2
And I know exactly what is in your head
I know that you’ve been missing me,
‘Cos I’ve know you since you were ‘bout 3
And I know you’ve got my number in your head
You don’t know me like you think you do
You don’t know me like you think you do
Track Name: I Wanna Go To The Sun
I can’t say goodbye
Tried all too hard and it made you cry
‘Cos, I’ve been cheating
I’ve been cheating
You threw me out the door
Locked it behind me
Then you asked for more
I couldn’t be myself
I couldn’t be myself
But I’m still singin’ this song
Baby you can’t do me wrong
Music is my food and life
Don’t take it away
I want the world to see, I’m about
I don’t care when it will be
There’s no doubt
I wanna go to the sun, everyone
I tell you what I can do
Sand and sea, will do it for me endlessly
I will never turn them away
I’ll never turn them away
Salty air and seagulls
See them, everywhere
I’m gonna live there one day
I wanna live there one day
But I’m still singin’ my song
Baby don’t you do me wrong
Music is my food and life
Don’t take it away
I want the world to see I’m about
I don’t care when it will be, I’m alright
I wanna go to the sun with everyone
I’ll tell you what I can do
But I’m still singin’ this song
Baby don’t you do me wrong
Music is my food and life
Don’t take it away
I want the world to see I’m about
I don’t care when it will be, I’m alright
I wanna go to the sun with everyone
I’ll tell you what I can do
I wanna go to the sun everyone
I don’t care when it will be
I wanna go to the sun with everyone
I’m gonna be free!
Track Name: I'll Never Do It Again
I’ll never do it again
These are the famous last words
Of every good woman
As she settles down into the
Final count of breakup game
‘Cos you see ,
She never wanted to be
One of those women
Who settled for a life of anonymity
Hey hey hey, don’t you hear what I say
You’ll live your life alone
If you ain’t ever home in yourself
I’ll never do it again
These are the famous last words
Of a defeated man
As he accepts the end
And hits the world again
To find some sweet talking baby
Someone to help him forget
‘Cos you see
He never wanted to be
One of those men
Who settled for a life of domesticity
Hey hey hey, don’t you hear what I say
You’ll live your life alone
If you ain’t ever home in yourself
I’ll never do it again, I’ll never do it again
I’ll never do it again, I’ll never do it again
Track Name: Ever Doubt
What do you expect from me?
I can’t take it any more
At the first bit of trouble all you see
Is the exit sign on the door
Stay, we can make this happen
Stay, don’t take the easy way out
Hey, I don’t believe you heard me
Don’t give up on yourself
Don’t you ever doubt.
That... what we have is meant to be
And I know that you still hurt
From the last time don’t you see
I’m not her, don’t treat me like dirt
Stay, if you go you’ll hurt me
Stay, don’t take the easy way out
Hey, I don’t believe you listened
Don’t give up on yourself
Don’t you ever doubt.
But you are pushin’, Yeah you are pushin’
Yeah you are pushin’, me away
Don’t you push me, No no don’t you push me,
No baby don’t you push me, Don’t push me away
Don’t give up on yourself, don’t you ever doubt
But you are pushin’, Yeah you are pushin’
Yeah you are pushin’, me away
Don’t you push me, No no don’t you push me,
No baby don’t you push me, Don’t push me away
With... your disrespect and your introspect
And your moaning all the time,
I’m appealing to your intellect
But you take no note of mine
So go, ‘cos you never listen
Go, you’ve finally pushed me away
I say go, I don’t believe you heard me
Don’t give up on yourself, don’t you ever doubt
Don’t give up on yourself, don’t you ever doubt
Don’t give up on yourself, don’t you ever doubt
Don’t give up on yourself
Track Name: A Little Shut Eye
A LITTLE SHUTEYE
Harry left when our souls were out of whack
He just went with my heart
He made it back to the town he used to attack
He just tore them apart
And those promises you left
Were all that I could keep
Ringing in my head
Give me something I can break
Some might suggest that
I’m not fully awake
But I’ve been drinking all day
I could use a little space
I could use a little shuteye
I was wrecked by the time he made the break
Couldn’t take it all in
I just blinked and the whole world missed a beat
Woke up to a new start
And those promises you left
Were all that I could keep
Ringing in my head
Give me something I can break
Some might suggest that
I’m not fully awake
But I’ve been drinking all day
I could use a little space
I could use a little shuteye
Use a little, use a little
Use a little, use a little
And those promises you left
Were all that I could keep
Ringing in my head
Give me something I can break
Some might suggest that
I’m not fully awake
But I’ve been drinking all day
I could use a little space
I could use a little shuteye
Track Name: Life
You think about
The time between your birth and your death
Entitlement is wrapped all around you
You think about
The things that haven’t happened your way
There’s jealousy, resentment, envy too
Disappointment
Wakes you and you cover your face
Your day begins with weariness and rue
Disappointment
Grabs you, shakes you into a rage
You feel futile, you can’t build something new
This thing called life, this thing called life
Ease or strife? In this thing called life...
You’re bitter and
You’re needy and you want something more
You think you’re not all that you should be
You’re bitter and
The taste’s pervaded all of your world
Ask yourself “What’s happening to me?”
All that I can
Tell is that you’re holding your breath
Not sure if it’s a tantrum or a scream
All that I can
See’s a virtual noose round your neck
You’re the hangman and you’re gathering your team
This thing called life, this thing called life
Ease or strife? In this thing called life...
I realise you
Plaster all the smiles on your face,
You need to walk on through a mile or two
I realise you
Think you want, you’re wanting my life
Please just walk some miles within my shoes
You know
That there is something more,
You’re searching your world
Want and need and grasp and breathe it in
You know
You’re just beside yourself, you can’t settle down
How about you live in your own skin?
This thing called life, this thing called life
Ease or strife? In this thing called life...
This thing called life, this thing called life
Ease or strife? In this thing called life...
